Dear Patient

We are now well into the summer, and what a summer it has been, I hope you have all been enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve been having in Ayrshire. The summer is a special time for us at StEPS as it’s been 1 year at the end of July since we opened our Largs clinic.  What a fast year it has been!  We have loved every day here and are enjoying meeting the people of Largs and surrounding towns and villages.  Everyone has been so supportive of the business and we would like to thank you for all the support and encouragement we’ve received over the last year. 

As the business in Largs is growing at a fast pace, we are delighted to announce that we have a new full-time podiatrist starting with us.  Mandy MacDonald will be joining the StEPS family at the end of July.  Mandy has worked as a podiatrist in private practice for 5 years and was actually taught by Vicki in university.  Vicki is delighted to have Mandy on board.  Our growing Largs team, means that we will be extending our opening times, with late nights available on Wednesdays and Thursdays for those of you with day-time commitments.  We will also be opening our clinics on alternate Saturdays, one week in Troon and the next in Largs.   Our new opening times in Largs are as follows:

Monday: 9am – 5pm

Tuesday: 9am – 5pm

Wednesday: 10am – 7pm

Thursday: 9am – 6pm

Friday: 9am – 5pm

Every other Saturday 9am – 3pm


Vicki will still be practicing from the Largs clinic and will be focussing on driving the Biomechanical Assessment aspect of the business.  As many of you will know, we have been steadily working away on the large clinic space in Largs, and we are delighted to say that we now have the area floored and prepared, ready to open our new Biomechanics Clinic.  We have new state of the art technology that will allow us to offer full biomechanics services, including gait analysis using Optogait as well as Podotech Pressure Pad for diabetic foot checks.


We will be hosting an open week on the week commencing 3rd September, to celebrate our birthday and officially open our biomechanics clinic, which we would be delighted to see you at. We’ll be offering a range of free check-ups, demonstrations and talks.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page @stepspod for updates on this and other events. 


Enjoy the rest of the summer and we look forward to seeing you at your next appointment or at our open week.


Best wishes


Vicki & The StEPS Podiatry Team
